WOW! Talk about World Class HUGE. This first weekend of the World Cup was incredible, for sure. For full results, go to:
I am still a little fuzzy from adding scores and watching big moves from everyone today, so I can't remember the full list of results.

To get into the Olympics, a sport must have a World Championship event every two years, a World Cup event the years in between, and 50 countries participating. This is the first year of kayaking's World Cup! There were appx 150 competitiors from all over the globe participating this weekend at The Garb in Beachtown, Ontario in Squirt, C-1, OC-1, juniors and pro class K-1. The next two events are going to be in Watertown, NY (next weekend) and Rock Island, TN (the following weekend).
